Walking for Freedom: A Venezuelan Story is an immersive 360° documentary short created with the idea that some journeys need to be experienced to be understood. The Virtual Reality format puts you in the shoes of the Venezuelan refugees forced to flee their country on foot, where you can follow their journey across the Simón Bolívar International Bridge that links Venezuela and Colombia, past the illegal passing known as “la trocha,” and through to their final destinations, wherever they may be.
Walk with them and hear their stories. This project was filmed and post produced in Colombia, Peru and the United States, and has won Bronze VR/AR Media Award and Social Impact Award from the DC Web Film Festival.
